This lily has phenomenal growth and bloom! It is literally so loaded with flowers it becomes top-heavy and requires staking even though the stems are fairly thick and strong. Blooms are white with a bright yellow interior, and a pale primrose yellow dusted at the base of pure white petals on the outside. It is strongly fragrant, completely hardy and very easy to grow.
